Ocean Storm Start Up Soft Top Surfbrett

Das Start-Up Model wurde für Surfanfänger entwickelt, die beim ersten Surfbrett-Kauf nicht gerade ein Vermögen ausgeben wollen. Die ausgewählten EPS-Schaum-Kerne werden mit einem zentralen Holz-Stringer verbunden. Sie werden maschinell geschnitten und dann von Hand sorgfältig weiter verarbeitet.

Die EPS-Kerne werden mit einer 6oz dicken Glasfaser-Schicht laminiert. Die Oberseite des Brettes ist mit einem schützenden XPE-Schaum umgeben und die Unterseite ist mit einer HDPE-Schicht verfestigt.

Die Fin-Plugs sind 100% versiegelt und wasserdicht.

Das Start-Up wird empfohlen für Kinder und Erwachsene mit einem Gewicht von nicht mehr als 70 kg. Die Finnen sind inklusive.

Dieses Board wird komplett mit Finnen geliefert.

Technical informations

You’re new to the world of surf but you’re motivated to advance with a board that is very versatile and evolutive. With a construction that combines foam with fiber glass, you can start doing manouvers and turns. By choosing a slightly smaller size or a SlimJim model (for the lighter and smaller surfers), the Start Up is also perfect for a more advanced surfer.

We can generally base our choice of board size by looking at weight and height of the surfer. If you are a beginner surfer and…

  • …you weigh between 15kg and 25kg with a height between 95cm and 125cm, we suggest to take a board between 5’0’’ and 6’6’’
  • …you weigh between 25kg and 35kg with a height between 125cm and 140cm, we suggest to take a board between 6’0’’ and 7’0’’ (standard or SlimJim)
  • …weigh between 35kg and 55kg with a height between 140cm and 165cm, we suggest to take a board between 7’0’’ (standard or SlimJim) and 8’0’’.
  • …you weigh between 55kg and 65kg with a height between 160cm and 175cm, we suggest to take a board between 7’6’’ and 8’0’’
  • …you are heavier and/or taller than the above mentioned, we suggest to opt for the model Back to School.

If you weigh less than average, we suggest to choose the SlimJim model. It is slightly less wide and therefore has a bit less volume than the standard model.

If you weigh more than average, we suggest to opt for the model Back to School. This model is generally more robust than the Start Up model.

If you are a more advanced surfer, you can choose a board that is slightly smaller (one size smaller) than the one suggested.


EPS foam blanks are bonded to a central wooden stringer, machine cut and meticulously hand finished. The blanks are then laminated with 6oz fibreglass before being wrapped with a protective IXPE foam on the top deck and an HDPE slick on the bottom.
